Disappointed, very disappointed.
OK, the justification is that this is a good quality video and others in the vault are not as good. Me, I'd rather have a mediocre copy (audio/video) of a great show than a great copy (audio/video) of a mediocre show. That's especially the case when this is the very next show following on from one (CD & DVD) that's already available.
Did anyone see this coming? Is this (Philly '89) top of anyone's wish-list? I doubt it, but feel free to tell me I'm wrong.
On the plus side, I can save my money for the Bickershaw '72 CD/DVD set (dream, dream), if it ever comes out ..... warts and all, tape-flips, breaks, black-outs, water droplets over the camera lens - whatever imperfections there may be ........... but it would be peak Dead, as opposed to past-it Dead free-wheelin' downhill all the way from Buffalo.

Never mind, if we got all that we wished for there'd be nothing for us to dream about ..........

Following on from what I just wrote ..........

Previously I semi-justified the non-release (non- official release that is) of the Veneta Creamery Benefit show (you know the one - Aug '72) 'cos the cameramen seemed to have forgotten Keith was part of the band at that time. This (perhaps) might have been the reason that they deemed it not quite good enough to release commercially, though there are many unofficial copies out there.

That being the case (no Keith on display, though you can hear him), who'd have preferred a nice glossy official Sunshine Daydream CD/DVD set and who would prefer a Philly '89? Hands up ...........

Prefer the Sunshine Daydream of course but the copy I have is already pretty high quality soooo.... Bickershaw is another story though...

not the summary Bickershaw DVD (1-2 songs from a number of performers) which has had a generally very poor reception, but a fresh DVD/CD combo showcasing just the Dead's set. No longer available here ............... 'cos 5 minutes or so (OK, maybe more) were released on the official "Steppin' Out" set, but the 50% aud / 50% sbd still available via E-tree or LLL show that this was a great err, show ........

If Elvis Costello was prepared to give it 5 stars (take a peep at the 'Deadicated' booklet), .......... trust me, it can't be bad !!!!!!!

There was a lot more than "five minutes" of the Dead's Bickershaw Festival show released. The "Steppin' Out" release includes Greatest Story, Mr. Charlie, Big Boss Man, Playing In The Band, Good Lovin', Ramble On Rose, Lovelight and Going Down The Road Feeling Bad from this show.
I wish they had put out another disc of the Dark Star and Other One from this show.
